ebirdsubregionlist()which lists sub-regions within a specified region (thanks @dbradnum, #90).
ebirdfreq()(now throws an informative error) as the frequency data request can’t be done through the website anymore without logging in first. This request might be added to the eBird API in the near future (#88).
ebirdhotspotlist()which provides a list of hotspots in a region or nearby coordinates (#87).
ebirdregionspecies()which provides a list of species codes seen in a location (thanks @dbradnum, #86).
ebirdchecklistfeed()which provides a list of checklists submitted on a given date at a region or hotspot (thanks @mfoos, #79).
CRAN release: 2019-10-24

This version switches all functions over the the new eBird API, given that the one previously used by
rebird will be retired on October 1st. As such, many of the functions in
rebird have changed, and the previous versions of the package will not work correctly.
- The biggest change in the new API is that most queries (with the exception of
ebirdtaxonomy()) require users to provide an API key, which is linked to your eBird user account. See the README.md or the package vignette for more info on how to set up a key. Alternatively, the key can be provided as an argument in all functions.
- The new API requests, and thus
rebirdfunctions, now use species codes rather than scientific names for species-specific requests.
locas its first argument instead of
regionas it allows for both regions and hotspots to be specified.
- Given the changes to the eBird API, the functions
ebirdregioncheck()have been deprecated and will be removed in future releases. These functions still work in the updated API, but might cease to do so in the near future.
ebirdregion()has the same functionality as the first two functions, while
ebirdregioninfo()provides a more informative interface than
